“The Government have rightfully performed a u-turn over A-Level grades – but this should never have happened in the first place. It shouldn’t take a huge country-wide backlash for the Government to realise their policy was detrimental to thousands of young people who had their futures jeopardised with these results. Their futures are still in jeopardy with many young people rejected by their preferred universities.
“The Government could have addressed this before results came out, and they chose not to.
“Now we face a mess where Universities have offered more places than they can accommodate. Students who did not meet the grades under the Ofqual system may now have with Teacher Assessed Grades – but Universities have already given away their places. The Prime Minister needs to show some leadership and fix this mess.”
